Super Boat is very proud to have the very best medical rescue team in the sport. Rescue divers, medical staff and a respected South Florida trauma surgeon provide support for the 10-race offshore race-series. Recently, Dr. Lou Pizano, (Jackson Memorial Hospital Miami – Trauma surgeon), was flown from JMH to the crash site of a Miami Dade Police officer. Dr. Pizano, while on-scene was able to stabilize the officer and safely remove the embedded sign from the officer’s leg.
Super Boat is proud to have Dr. Pizano as part of the traveling medical staff. More often than not, offshore racing accidents do not require a trauma surgeon on site, but it’s great to know that if a call goes out during a race, Super Boat International is in safe hands.
